The Raptor Center Partners with Local School

A recent article outlined one of the partnerships TRC has been working on in our Education Department.  Rockford Middle Schools-Center for Environmental "Studies seventh grade students explore a year’s connection to the University of Minnesota Raptor Center, which includes a visit to the lab and clinic in St. Paul and three school visits from an interpretive naturalist. Students have the opportunity to get up close and personal with many of Minnesota’s beautiful raptors, including bald eagles, peregrine falcons, saw whet owls, and red tailed hawks. Seventh grade teachers have worked with the University to develop lesson plans and units centered on data collected by The Raptor Center; classroom standards such as ecology, government and policies, graphing and interpreting data, and technical writing all come together, centered around authentic experiences and information."
